Hope of the Ages

This modern Christmas song by Sovereign Grace is one of my favourites; seeping with so many scripture references and prophecies, its a blessing to sing of our Saviour who is a fulfilment of all God told us would come.

The prophets had glimpsed and
Te angels had watched with awe;
The unfolding plans of our
Faithful, redeeming God.
What they longed for we have seen;
What was promised we believe.

Hope of the Ages, Isaiah’s great light
Abraham’s offspring
Blessing of Jacob, Judah’s might
Hope of the Ages, David’s true Son
Desire of nations, promised salvation
God with us.`

The vision once clouded has now
To our hearts appeared;
Once shrouded in myst’ry,
Redemption has been made clear.
Our Messiah now has come;
Word made Flesh, the saving One


All hail the One now revealed to the world
In Bethlehem born to a young virgin girl
Lamb without blemish yet cruelly betrayed
Who cried, “It is finished!”
And rose from the grave.
The Father’s great gift and
The proof of His love;
Hope of the Ages, our God here with us
